Brighton vs Manchester United Head-to-head
Brighton and Man Utd locked horns 16 times total so far and as expected, stats are going in favour of the Red Devils who won 11 games. Seagulls and their fans celebrated only three victories so far.
It’s quite interesting to mention that the last five h2h’s ended with three goals or more. Are we about to see another thriller duel?
Brighton defeated Manchester United at this stadium both times in 2018 in Premier League matches.
Brighton vs Manchester United Prediction
Brighton and Manchester United were involved in a thrilling tussle in their Premier League clash at the weekend but it was Man Utd who came away with the spoils in an extraordinary finish to that game. They bagged from the spot after VAR intervened after the final whistle had blown, but that setback may galvanise Brighton ahead of this Carabao Cup clash. Whilst neither side is expected to be full-strength, there will be enough attacking talent on the pitch to make it another intriguing encounter and in what should be an open contest, both teams are capable of finding the back of the net once again.
